TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  NO open flames.  Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION     In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 
 
EXPOSURE   STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF (PREGNANT) WOMEN! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!   
Inhalation Laboured breathing. See Ingestion.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Pain. Redness.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes   Wear safety goggles.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Nausea. Vomiting.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention . 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL
PACKAGING & LABELLING

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
DARK BROWN LIQUID. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on burning. This produces toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides. The substance is a weak acid. Reacts with strong oxidants. This generates fire and explosion hazard. May decompose on heating above 32°C. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion. 

Inhalation risk
No indication can be given about the rate at which a harmful concentration of this substance in the air is reached on evaporation at 20°C. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the skin. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes malformations in human babies. 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Boiling point at 0.007kPa: 138-140°C
Relative density (water = 1): 1.10
Solubility in water: none
Vapour pressure at 20°C: negligible 
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Avoid release to the environment in circumstances different to normal use. 

NOTES
Incompatible with oil, oil based sprays and lime sulfur mixture.
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
Caprane, Crotothane and Karathane are trade names.
Card has been partly updated in October 2004.
